By far the biggest incompatibility I've run into is the change from :U
and :L to :tu and :tl, mostly because any existing makefiles that
contain :U or :L variable modifiers just silently do the wrong thing
under bmake. It's especially annoying because :L is really common in
fmake and its meaning in bmake is all but useless.
